How To Delete Your Snapchat Account

Snapchat is currently ranked among the most popular social media apps. The company just went public though its IPO was underwhelming. This is of course no indication of the app’s popularity. Snapchat is a force to reckon with for other social media apps; it’s original and Facebook copies a feature from it almost every two months. That said, Snapchat isn’t for everyone. The format for sharing anything on Snapchat is almost exclusively images. The option to share text messages is there but Snapchat is, like Instagram, an image centered network. If you’ve decided this is one fad you can sit out, you might want to delete your Snapchat account. Here’s how you can do just that.

From Your Desktop

Visit Snapchat (link at the end) and sign in to your account.

Recover Deleted Snapchat Account

You can recover a deleted Snapchat Account within 30 days after you delete it. To recover your account, simply login to Snapchat on your phone or on the web.

When you delete your Snapchat account, it goes into a suspended state for thirty days. During this time period, your friends cannot send you snaps. This period is a grace period in case you decide to change your mind about leaving the app. Snapchat preserves everything in your account for thirty days. You cannot recover your account once the thirty days have passed.

If you decide to sign up for Snapchat again, you will have to select a new username and there is no guarantee your old one will still be available.
